Good Picture Quality

A few people who reviewed this projector agreed that it had good picture quality.

Good Product Quality

Some Benq W7500 reviewers wrote in their reviews that this projector was good quality. Pcmag.com wrote on PC Mag “The BenQ W7500 can serve as either a home-theater or a home-entertainment projector, with excellent image quality and an assortment of highly welcome, advanced features” and rated it 80 out of 100.

Robust

A number of customers reckoned that this projector was well made. Projectorcentral.com wrote in their review “This 1080p DLP projector is built with home theater in mind” . Expert website Missingremote.com said “This projector is built for your house” in their review.

Good Technical Features

One person who purchased it mentioned that it had good features.

Good Support

One customer said that this projector had good technical guidance. Techlife.net said “Great detailed manual fine tuning”.

Good Sound Quality

One Benq W7500 owner mentioned that the Benq W7500 had good sound quality. Pcmag.com said on expert website PC Mag two years ago “The BenQ W7500 ($2,799) lacks both the built-in audio system you would expect in a home-entertainment projector” in their review of this projector.

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other data projectors of this age and spec which do not support Full HD projection, the Benq W7500 supports Full HD projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which support Full HD projection to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the LG PA1000[plb_2417081_price], and the Optoma GT1080[plb_2415608_price] is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Benq W7500 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other data projectors of this age and spec do support 3D image projection.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to look at include the Benq W770ST[plb_1561748_price]; or the LG PA1000[plb_2417081_price], or the Optoma GT1080[plb_2415608_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most comparable spec data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the W7500 do not have a built-in speaker. The Benq W7500 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the LG PA1000[plb_2417081_price], the Optoma GT1080[plb_2415608_price], or the Viewsonic PJD6544W[plb_1536138_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Benq W7500 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of this type and age also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

At only 2,000 ANSI lumens, the Benq W7500 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the W7500. The average projector brightness of projectors that were released more than two years ago is 2,900 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 300 ANSI lumens to 9,200 ANSI lumens.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the Optoma GT1080[plb_2415608_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.

Data projectors of this age and spec have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 2,000h and 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 6,900h. When compared to other multimedia projectors of this age and spec that we have checked the service life of lamp in economic mode of, the Benq W7500's service life of lamp in economic mode of only 2,500 hours is one of the shortest.
